Movie Review: “Into the Storm”

When I was a little girl, I had a morbid fascination with tornadoes. Not the damage that they caused to people’s homes and communities, nor the hurt and devastation caused to animals and...

HARD KNOCKS: Training Camp With The Cincinnati Bengals Begins

HARD KNOCKS: Training Camp With The Cincinnati Bengals Begins

It’s that time of year again. O yes, football fans, the tortuous off-season is finally coming to an end and our favorite teams and players are strapping on their pads for the 2013 NFL season. ‘Hard Knocks’ returns to familiar territory this year, revisiting the Cincinnati Bengals after a 4 year hiatus. This Bengals team, however, is far removed from the team we saw the last time HBO cameras were rolling in Cincinnati. No more Chad OchoCinco, no more Carson Palmer, no more low expectations. Begrudged by an 0-3 playoff record in the last four years, Cincinnati looks to finally make some noise in the AFC. For some, a...

An Interview with the Brilliant Mr. Jim Piddock of “Family Tree”

One of the most unique and original television shows to premier in the last decade has been Christopher Guest’s (This is Spinal Tap, Best in Show) new series “Family Tree.” Debuting on HBO on May 14, 2013, “Family Tree” is the story of how one man, Tom Chadwick (Chris O’Dowd), strives to learn more about his family and traces his genealogy from England back to America after losing his job and girlfriend.

The Newsroom: “Unintended Consequences”

The Newsroom: “Unintended Consequences”

And so began the interrogation of red and short-haired Maggie. In one episode gone from quirky and klutzy to “the world is going to dislocate something if it keeps resting on my shoulders,” which isn’t to play up some sort of dry wit concerning what caused the transition but… okay happy thoughts and spoiler warning.So Shelly got some time in the spotlight for the Occupy movement and before it could even be properly angled she was dragged right out from under it by a long, hooked cane held by Will McAvoy. Now Aaron Sorkin, the show’s writer, has a habit of building straw men with hindsight so it’s easy to pick apart...

Everybody Get Your Drink On in “Dead Meat,” “True Blood” Season 6 Episode 8

Everybody Get Your Drink On in “Dead Meat,” “True Blood” Season 6 Episode 8

If you’ve been on the internet this week, you’ve probably seen at least two articles about major characters dying this season, possibly even tonight: Alcide or Eric will soon be dead. How much truth is there to these rumors? Who knows – that’s why you have to watch the season. But to address them – if anyone deserves to die, it’s Sookie. I hate Sookie this season. Close second: Bill. Tied for second: Alcide. Very three last people on the list: Eric, Lafayette, and Pam, in no certain order. Anyone else dying is fine by me. That being said, let’s see who all died last week and who dies this...

Movie Review: Savages

Movie Review: Savages

The “okay, that happened” movie is a rare creature not often seen in the wild. Usually one has to wait until the it has aged and been domesticated for private viewing in order to better appreciate the unique anatomy of such a creature. For in the wild, observance of such oddities leads to a reproductive boom that can lead to infestations that last months. The only way to rid an infested area is to abandon wherever they may be nesting. Once they have been completely starved for attention, they are forced to abandon their nests and are eventually captured for further private entertainment. What this weird metaphor is trying to say is that...

Movie Review: Rise of the Guardians

Movie Review: Rise of the Guardians

What’s most surprising about a film where a bunch of personifications of childhood events join together to form a kiddie Justice League is that this is much better than a movie with such a great premise normally is. It knows how to pull you in and keep your attention all the way through, sometimes taking more time than it needs to for individual scenes, but this movie knows it’s audience well enough that it doesn’t matter. Action is well paced and choreographed. Character development, though it likes to take its sweet time, never really evolves beyond what this movie seems to want to subvert, in that all the main characters are less...

NEW Boardwalk Empire Season 4 Photos

Steve Newlin’s Field Guide to Vampires

Steve Newlin’s Field Guide to Vampires

Not so long ago, Reverend Steve Newlin was human, and like many of us, he kept a journal of sorts. Steve Newlin’s Field Guide to Vampires chronicles Steve’s human life, discussing supernatural beings, Newlin’s ex-wife Sarah– and other creatures of Satan. Steve’s focus, of course, was on Vampires, listing their strengths and weaknesses, their laws, and how to kill them. Eric and Pam have gotten their vampire hands on the Guide, and leave handwritten notes for each other correcting Newlin and mocking him along the way. Written by Michael McMillan (Steve Newlin on True Blood), and associate producer Gianna Sobol,...

Roger Ashton-Griffiths Cast as Mace Tyrell

Soon after riddling to fans about a recent casting in the upcoming fourth season of Game of Thrones, George R.R. Martin confirmed via his Not A Blog that English character actor Roger Ashton-Griffiths has been cast as Mace Tyrell. Mace is the Lord of Highgarden, father of Loras and Margaery Tyrell, and the oafish son of Lady Olenna. Mr. Ashton-Griffiths certainly seems like he will be able to pull of the oafish part of Mace quite well. Ashton-Griffiths has quite the résumé, and has appeared in films including The Brothers Grimm, A Knight’s Tale, and Gangs of New York, as well as in television shows The Tudors...
